Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Ādi 1.5
rādhā kṛṣṇa-praṇaya-vikṛtir hlādinī śaktir asmād
ekātmānāv api bhuvi purā deha-bhedaḿ gatau tau
caitanyākhyaḿ prakaṭam adhunā tad-dvayaḿ caikyam āptaḿ
rādhā-bhāva-dyuti-suvalitaḿ naumi kṛṣṇa-svarūpam
rādhā — Śrīmatī Rādhārāṇī; kṛṣṇa — of Lord Kṛṣṇa; praṇaya — of love; vikṛtiḥ — the transformation; hlādinī śaktiḥ — pleasure potency; asmāt — from this; eka-ātmānau — both the same in identity; api — although; bhuvi — on earth; purā — from beginningless time; deha-bhedam — separate forms; gatau — obtained; tau — those two; caitanya-ākhyam — known as Śrī Caitanya; prakaṭam — manifest; adhunā — now; tat-dvayam — the two of Them; ca — and; aikyam — unity; āptam — obtained; rādhā — of Śrīmatī Rādhārāṇī; bhāva — mood; dyuti — the luster; su-valitam — who is adorned with; naumi — I offer my obeisances; kṛṣṇa-svarūpam — to Him who is identical with Śrī Kṛṣṇa.
The loving affairs of Śrī Rādhā and Kṛṣṇa are transcendental manifestations of the Lord's internal pleasure-giving potency. Although Rādhā and Kṛṣṇa are one in Their identity, They separated Themselves eternally. Now these two transcendental identities have again united, in the form of Śrī Kṛṣṇa Caitanya. I bow down to Him, who has manifested Himself with the sentiment and complexion of Śrīmatī Rādhārāṇī although He is Kṛṣṇa Himself.
